Please find attached photos of my grandfather old IRA medals. His name was James Kearns, Owenwee. Also attached is a list of volunteers from the Owenwee, Liscarney area who participated in activities in the area.
My grandfather’s brother John was captured during activities & imprisoned, but not sure where. James immigrated to the USA & joined the army there, after a number of years, he returned home as his brother died young & he came home to take over the family farm. We are very proud of our grandfather & his brother in enabling our fight for freedom. The medals are in pristine condition all those years later. (Irene (Navin) Reilly)
